Hello, Cruisers

Ive been following your threads and reading your stories for a couple of years, but weve recently upgraded our last racing dinghy to our first coastal cruiser, so I thought Id better join proper, as my questions and comments are far less theoretical than they once were!

Between charters and our new (to us) boat, weve spent about about a month and a half afloat this year- almost all of it on the Puget Sound. With flexible jobs, we hope to cruise the summers for the next few years until our oldest (a good sailor, but even more devoted soccer player) heads to college. Then we plan to transition from mostly ashore to mostly afloat, and to cruising full time as soon as we can manage it, younger kids and all.

Were looking forward to actually interacting with you all, instead of just reading. Despite sailing small boats nearly my whole life, I may have a lot of dumb questions that seem obvious to those of you who have spent a lifetime on boats big enough to carry berths and auxiliaries

Re: Hello, Cruisers

Welcome and summer sailings around the PS area sounds incredible. I'm just north a bit over the border.
